Seth is an instructor in the natural resources program in the College of Forestry at OSU-Cascades. Before returning to Central Oregon, Seth was a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow in the Department of Biological Sciences at Fordham University. Additionally, he spent 1.5 years in the biodiversity hotspot of the Atlantic forest in Bahia, Brazil researching habitat fragmentation. His research integrates field-based experiments, molecular ecology, and spatial analysis to answer biological questions with ecological, economic, and conservation implications to find solutions to environmental challenges. Seth is particularly interested in the reproduction, dispersal, recruitment, and genetic diversity of forest species. Seth also worked for the Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests as a field botanist and fire ecologist.
